Spice: The variety of life

In light of yesterday's post about the psychological importance of breaking one's routine, I realized how much I'm always trying to change things up in little ways - from the color of my bed sheets to the scented soap in my shower. I rarely take the same route to work twice in a row. I'd love to be a food blogger, but couldn't bear the thought of sticking to one topic. And let's not even discuss hairstyles. What can I say? I bore easily. It's a Sagittarius thing. This might explain why I'm a complete and utter sucker for a Penzey's spice store. Consider what I hauled home with me after a 20-minute visit yesterday.  (Berbere? What the heck is that?)

Berbere was this month's GwP, right? I, too, am a Penzey's fanatic. My Best GwP was milwaukee steak seasoning.

Yes, Kim. I'm going to do a West African chicken thigh thing tomorrow night. Will have to try the Milwaukee stuff. Thank God there's no Penzey's in town. I'd be broke and out of cabinet space.
